Call to Worship: Psalm 33:1-5 (NIV)
1 Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;
it is fitting for the upright to praise him.

make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.

play skillfully, and shout for joy.
4 For the word of the Lord is right and true;
he is faithful in all he does.
5 The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of his unfailing love.
